The St Ives Modro System at Vauxhall

  • Location: Black Prince Road and Newport Street, London
Haddonstone’s St Ives Modro System™, inspired by a 1950s Barbara Hepworth textile design, has now been relocated to the corner of Black Prince Road and Newport Street, London SE11 6AY – just 150 metres from Damien Hurst’s acclaimed new gallery. Although now showing “signs of wear” following two moves, the installation can still impress visitors.

The bold three dimensional form was used initially as part of the Chelsea Fringe before it moved to Tate Britain for the duration of the “Barbara Hepworth: Sculpture for a Modern World” exhibition. It has now taken permanent residence at Vauxhall.

The concept for the unique modular design is inspired by Hepworth’s textile design in striking black and white colours. Haddonstone has transformed the design into a three dimensional form with contrasting smooth Portland colours against textured Slate colours. The segments create a formal seating layout softened by planted sections in the composition of the Hepworth design.

The St Ives Modro System™ allows designers, developers and private clients to enhance any open space with a robust contemporary design – whether a private garden, public park, commercial or residential development. Being modular, a client can either recreate the Hepworth design in its entirety or just use certain elements, either to create an entirely new shape or just to use a particular segment of the original.
